White coat hypertension is present in 10–20% of clinic referrals for ambulatory blood pressure measurement; the reported prevalence in the population is around 10%. Patients with high conventional blood pressure and normal average daytime ambulatory pressures have a higher risk of major cardiovascular events than those with clinically normal blood pressure and a lower risk than those with high pressures during the daytime. White coat hypertension may affect young people, elderly people, people with normal blood pressure, those with hypertension, and pregnant women.
